ELKO, Nev. (AP) - The Bureau of Land Management says it’s rounding up 100 wild horses in eastern Nevada for public safety reasons.

The Elko Daily Free Press reports (https://bit.ly/2i37G2Q ) that the animals are being removed by a helicopter along U.S. Highway 93 and State Route 322. The roundup is being conducted this week within and outside the Eagle and Silver King Herd Management Areas.

The agency’s Ely District will remove up to 50 wild horses from between Pioche and Eagle Valley and another 50 from the Bennet Springs area southwest of Panaca.

The BLM is aiming to remove horses that have wandered outside the two management areas in search of forage.

The animals will be taken to an agency corral in Fallon, where they will be offered up for adoption.
